I'm struggling to get Tikz to run on my University terminal, for some as of yet unknown reason, and I don't have the permissions to install Tikz. I've emailed the 'computer help people' asking them to fix it, but that could take anywhere between a day and a month.

base |-- doc | `-- generic |-- source | `-- latex `-- tex |-- context |-- generic |-- latex `-- plain
